10 Aug When Paint Spills
Paint Spills and Carpet
Carpet Keepers has seen its fair share of carpet disasters that call for urgent and immediate action – emergency carpet cleaning! Spilling a cup of coffee if left uncleaned can leave a lasting impression. But what about a gallon of paint? While the coffee stain can be treated and ultimately cleaned out, a gallon of paint spilled on a carpet is another story altogether.
When the Paint Spills
Of course when you are painting the trim in your family room and a small drop lands on the carpet, you know what to do, right? Search the internet (of course) for a quick solution to your paint spill. Here is one site that details a variety of quick DIY carpet clean-up solutions.
The small spills, drops and messes are just that small and typically an easy clean. When a gallon spills you need to contact expert emergency carpet cleaners. With spills of this size the paint not only spreads far and wide, but it penetrates beyond the fibers and potentially into the padding and subfloor.
